- Failure to Protect Every Resident from All Forms of Abuse, Physical Punishment, and Being Separated from Others- citation #F223 date March 1, 2017
The state investigators determined the nursing home "failed to ensure residents were free from sexual abuse." This issue involved seven residents, including "unidentified female residents who received nonconsensual sexual contact from [three male residents]."
The investigators determined that "the facility's failure to protect female residents from repeated nonconsensual sexual contact by male residents resulted in the determination of Immediate Jeopardy."
In one case, a resident's Care Plan included a problem statement indicating that "the resident will function at optimal levels within limitations imposed by Alzheimer's and free from harm." The goal statement added an approach noting that "the resident wanders. Also, at times, other residents have touched her inappropriately and she is not able to remove their hands." The staff is "to monitor, intervene and protect her."
One individual stated during a confidential interview that three male residents had targeted the resident "for putting their hands in her crotch." The confidential informant said that the resident "could not defend herself and staff would separate them when these incidents occurred." The investigators asked how the incident was reported. The informant said that they documented the incidents "in the Nurse's Notes and the Social Worker and Director of Nursing were informed."
The informant stated that the resident "had to be moved to the Second Floor to get her away from these men." A review of the victim's Nurse's Notes indicated that the resident was "wandering in a wheelchair in the hallway [while being inappropriately touched] by a male resident."
At another time, the resident was "found in the hallway with another male resident. The male resident had his hands down [the female resident's] pants." The female "was attempting to get away from the male."
In a separate incident, a staff member verbally abused a resident, "causing the resident to become upset and cry."
